The Expendable Men
During the cold war with the Soviet Union, an influential American in military intelligence rewarded Ian McGregor for saving his daughters. McGregor was enrolled in an exhausting training program to exploit his many attributes, and to further his benefactor’s career to the status of “General”.
The Expendable Man is a taut thriller loaded with spies and political intrigue.
Old hardliners in the Kremlin formed a clandestine group to oppose Gorbachev’s politics as being premature. To prove their point, they schemed with a drug cartel and other criminal gangs to undermine the American economy and make President Reagan’s idea of laying a protective canopy over America look like a ridiculous boast.
McGregor frustrated their plans in the past, before becoming an agent for an elite organization named C.A.T. (Countries against Terrorism). He changed his name, occupation, and location to marry the woman he loved, only to be tracked by two killers intent on obeying a long-standing order to assassinate him.
McGregor is forced to revert to his old identity and becomes an even more formidable adversary to settle scores with the mafia and to unmask a dangerous terrorist. Will he become The Expendable Man?
Random Thoughts of a Canadian Patriot takes on the world! It reveals the possibilities of multiculturalism, and considers the long-range effects of a changing economic world in relation to Canada.
One chapter defines the relative strength of money, and another addresses the need for world cooperation in dealing with global warming. There is a plausible explanation of how and why man became a confrontational zealot over his adopted religion. It also explains why religion became an argument of creation versus evolution. Some light is also thrown on Canada’s much-touted health care system.
The large number of political parties in Canada is shown as a disadvantage to a democratic federal election ever gaining a majority government. The book also shows how costly social programs lead to a spiral of “thinning the wealth,” with government the main beneficiary.
